Summer Workshops 2017

PASTEL SOCIETY SUMMER WORKSHOPS 2017

A special series of Pastel Workshops for the amateur and professional artist.
The workshops cover a wide range of subjects and will be tutored by members of the Pastel Society. The workshops will run from 10.30am – 4.00pm. Participants should bring a packed lunch. Drawing boards and easels will be provided, but students should bring their normal range of materials. Models will be available, but where the subject is landscape, participants are recommended to bring sketches to work from. The workshops will run at St George’s College, Weybridge Road, Addlestone, Surrey. KT15 2QS

With its custom built studio and beautiful gardens and surroundings, this is an excellent venu for the Pastel Society Summer Workshops.
